DID YOU KNOW that collagen supplementation is very popular at the moment, especially for skin and joint health? While it does provide value in certain situations, it is always better to optimize the source of our own collagen production. One of the best ways to boost and/or maintain collagen is by getting an ideal amount of vitamin C from your diet and supplements. The, collagen supplements may be superfluous. A new study from Nutrients found that vitamin C supplementation increases collagen synthesis, leading to improvement in tendonitis and other tendon-related disorders. How do you know if you are getting enough vitamin C? First, you should check your genetic predisposition for utilizing vitamin C from diet. This is included in our Pure Genomics genetic wellness screening. Second, your diet should be assessed for fruit and vegetable consumption. Third, if you are not taking a vitamin C supplement or a multivitamin that has a significant amount, ask your health professional what would be the right amount for you.

Nutrition Ignored by Docs for Chronic Disease
Steve: It is no wonder why we always feel we are "fighting the good fight," as well as "fighting an uphill battle". With nutrition, it seems whenever we go one step forward, we take two steps back. You'll understand why with the latest dumbfounding example of allopathic foolishness. It is common knowledge that good nutrition is foundational to preventing chronic disease and helping people live a healthier life. Yet, physicians responding to a recent Medscape Medical News survey said they believe that only about half of their patients would benefit from counseling on diet. In the online survey of 1005 physicians, broken down by specialty, diabetologists and endocrinologists said that 63% of their patients could benefit. By comparison, nephrologists said that 59% of their patients could use nutrition counseling. For cardiologists, it was 56%, for primary care physicians it was 55%, and gastroenterologists said that just 43% of their patients could benefit. Absolutely reprehensible. It should be 100% across the board. Of course, this shows the ongoing lack of proactive action on nutrition, reflecting the US "sick care" system, in which doctors wait until a patient has chronic disease before making a referral for a diet or lifestyle intervention. Frustrating no doubt, but we will never give up the fight and will continue to provide the services that prevent, and heal from the inside out.
